Samuel Michael David Gattermann (1748 – 1829) was Kantor in the St. Petri Kirche in Berlin and taught at the Kolnische Gymnasium. He was a pupil of Johann Philipp Kirnberger. He was an educated musician with particular interest for church music. The choral prelude Jesus meine Zuversicht is found in Johann Christoph Kühnau’s “Alte und neue Choralgesänge” of 1786.
The recording was done by Andreas Osiander, who also made a video with more background about piece, composer and the Petrikirche.
